Have you ever bought something twice on accident?

So have I! I’ve created Inventory charts for you so when you go to class or an event, you have a list of what you already have and what is on the wish list for next. I hope these are useful to you!

In This World in Vintage Faux Patina

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

This is my second project using the In This World stamp set, this time using the Faux Patina technique.  It’s a favorite technique of mine because everyone’s turns out quite differently.  It’s fun to see!

Very different from the Vintage Z Fold Card, this project uses darker colours and a has a more subdued look:

 

 

The background is created using the door image, the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder, various inks (PeekaBoo Peach, Crumb Cake, Sweet Sugarplum, Early Espresso, Flirty Flamingo, and Pool Party), and Copper Embossing Powder.

 

I made the flower using both the Pansy Punch and the Botanical Blooms Dies, but you can also use anything you prefer here.

In This World in Vintage Z Fold

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Happy New Year!

One of the class kits I gifted my team for Christmas centered around the In This World stamp set.  This is something of an eclectic set and fun to use:

 

I used one of the samples in the catalogue as inspiration for this one, but changed up the size, a few elements, and made it a z fold card.  I thought the sample was just beautiful.

 

It’s one of those projects that takes a little bravery, but following just a few techniques, you let the ink run where it may and create a unique piece each time.

 

To create the Z fold, simply score a strip of cardstock into thirds (or approximately thirds), and adhere between two panels.  So easy and fun!

Tomorrow is a big day in Stampin’ Up! world with the release of the new Occasions catalogue and the start of the SaleABration period.  Check back tomorrow for all the details!  (If you want to order In This World, best to do it after 4 Jan).

In addition, I will be sending out my January Customer Newsletter tomorrow, in the which will be an “newsletter only” embellishment bundle offer. If you aren’t receiving my newsletters, please sign up below:

Welcome to Jacque Williams in New Zealand!  I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying a bit of a holiday now.

Today the Thailand Achiever’s are sharing a few sneak peeks from the Occasions Catalogue – coming 4 January.  The Birdcage Builder was on my first order; I absolutely love it:

I’ve used Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, and Sweet Sugarplum as my colours.  The birdcage is created in a few steps, creating endless possibilities.

The Embossing Folder is also new; Falling Petals and is so sweet and soft.

The flowers in the background and the sentiment are from the Avante Garden set – and the best news is this one is FREE with a qualifying purchase ($110 in New Zealand).

All of the above are available 4 January.  If you don’t already have a demonstrator and are in New Zealand, please request your copy.

Enjoy the rest of the blog hop!  I know you will find so much talent and inspiration amongst this worldwide collection of achievers!

My Christmas Gift to My Team 2016

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

It’s almost Christmas Eve!   Every year I like to give my team a little gift to show appreciation to them for choosing me as their team leader.   Plus, they are all women who are willing to share, help, give, care, and love and they deserve a little spoiling!!  We as adult women don’t get it enough!

stampin-up-team-christmas-gifts-2016-new-zealand-creative-inkers

 

Basically I made each of them a pack containing a two hour class. It included a stamp set, two project samples, and 16 kits plus a bit of product.  Those who teach classes will appreciate the prep work being done and those who don’t will either enjoy the projects themselves or choose to share the experience with a friend or two.  I’m confident whatever type of demonstrator they are, they all love to craft and will find enjoyment out of the gift.

I’ll be sharing the more specific contents over the next week or so; I wanted to give everyone a chance to open and enjoy the surprise first.

To be honest, I had a lot of fun preparing these.  I’ve said it before, but I’ll remind myself again: it’s so fulfilling to craft for the sheer pleasure of giving someone a gift.

I enjoyed it so much that it’s got the wheels turning, and I think I will offer from time to time kit packs for purchase next year.   I’ve had many requests to provide scrapbooking page kits, so that will be on the menu as well.

My Christmas Tree this Year – in a Frame!

Happy Thursday and 3 days before Christmas!

As many of you know, my daughters are with extended family this year for the holidays, so Robert and I will be having a quiet one.  At first I was sad, but now we are making the most of it and getting some real quality husband/wife time in as well as some serious down time!  And the girls are truly having the time of their lives and being kept very busy.

So this is our tree this year.

My team member and friend, Ria Kaire, kindly made us this stunning framed art, and it’s perfect!

stampin-up-forever-evergreen-christmas-home-decor-framed-art

 

She has used the Forever Evergreen set for the images and embellished with the Mini Pinecones, Gold Twine, and Gold Sequins.

How beautiful is that?!   I have this on display on our mantle now.  We were going to wait until Christmas morning to open our tiny little pile of gifts, but I’m so glad we didn’t wait so we can enjoy this for the week!

save-or-make

It’s wonderful to be part of a Stampin’ Up! team, especially this one.  Sale-A-Bration will be starting in January – and that means there will be an awesome bonus for anyone who decides to join my team.   Start thinking about it now; I’d be happy to send you an informational packet.

Merry Christmas!
